Cities in Europe are vital centres of economic activity, innovation and employment. However, they face increasing challenges to their mobility systems such as congestion, air pollution, ambient noise, CO2 emissions, road accidents and urban sprawl. To tackle these problems cities need to develop and implement coherent and challenging Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPS). This webinar presented two new tools that have recently been made available to cities to improve their mobility planning: (1) The Urban Transport Roadmaps online tool allows you to explore and identify appropriate sustainable transport policy measures, quantify the transport, environmental and economic impacts of these measures and consider an implementation pathway (roadmap) for the policy scenario. (2) EVIDENCE offers a range of tools and resources to make the argument for investing in sustainable transport and to assess its economic benefits. Such an enhanced knowledge will help facilitate effective integration of sustainable transport measures into urban mobility plans.

Freight distribution is a vital part of life in modern cities and plays a relevant role within the whole urban mobility system. But, among the different components of mobility, urban freight logistics had and sometimes continue to have less emphasis in city policies and thus failing to contribute to the reduction of its negative impacts on urban liveability, like noise, pollution, congestion and reduced road safety. In order to support policy makers and urban mobility practitioners, the CIVITAS WIKI project recently released the Policy Note ‘Making urban freight logistics more sustainable’ which condensates successful approaches and solutions particularly addressed to small and medium-sized European cities. This free webinar has presented and discussed in a comprehensive way the outcomes of the Policy Note offering also an insight on some selected measures. One concrete experience from the CIVITAS city of Almada (PT) on how to plan and develop an efficient and sustainable urban freight logistics system has also been presented, together with the new CIVITAS Freight Cluster established for a better coordination of urban freight projects at urban level.

Planning urban mobility is a complex undertaking for any city, even more so when urban functions, people and mobility are scattered across different towns of polycentric or cross-border regions. Indeed, planning mobility in polycentric and cross-border regions requires the coordination of policies and services of many stakeholders - transport and urban planners, local and regional policy makers, urban and interurban public transport providers - within and across different centres and administrative boundaries. This webinar debated on the methodology to develop a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan for regions with a polycentric or cross-border profile, bringing together key stakeholders to initiate dialogue across institutional and geographic boundaries. First, the Poly-SUMP methodology for urban mobility planning in complex regions was presented. Then, two different experiences from cities and regions of the CIVITAS Forum Network were offered: Thessaloniki and Central Macedonia (EL), Nova Gorica (SI) and Gorizia (IT) provided an outlook on the challenges and potentials of planning mobility respectively on a polycentric and cross-border region.

The need to adopt a gender-sensitive perspective is emerging as a challenging and impending task for urban mobility planners and decision makers. Women travel differently than men in relation to transport modes used, distance travelled, the daily number of trips and their pattern, and, not surprisingly, they also travel for different purposes. Organised by the CIVITAS Thematic Group Integrated Planning, the webinar debated on emerging gender sensitive approaches on mobility planning for achieving gender equality in transport planning and accessibility. First the gaps to be filled about public transport and planning have been discussed, then the point of view of a civic platform to improve transport through citizens’ participation has been presented and lastly the successful city strategy implemented by a former demonstration city of CIVITAS II has been showcased.

Most of our city centres are often overrun by freight delivery vehicles causing severe congestion problems and pollution. Urban Freight Logistic has to be re-thinked by introducing on one hand some restrictive measures for a more efficient freight distribution and, on the other, new “green“ vehicles more suitable for historical city centres and humanised areas. Organised by the CIVITAS Thematic Group on Urban Freight Logistics with the support of CIVITAS WIKI, the webinar will presented 3 case studies and discussed more in detail of cargo bikes for last mile delivery as well as of regulatory measures and incentives for zero emission city logistics.

CIVITAS VANGUARD and the CIVITAS thematic group ‘Urban Freight Logistics’ held a WEBINAR on how the cities of Stockholm, Utrecht, London and Hasselt have set up their Urban Consolidation Centres (UCCs). Through short 15-minute presentations this webinar looked at the experience from four different cities, including success factors, barriers and lessons learned, the role of local authorities and other stakeholders, services offered, business models, and policies which ‘complement’ the implementation of UCCs.
